Overview

The Dirty Thirties Dust Bowl-inspired Dreadnought is meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, it sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order guitars in the first half of the century, the Dirty Thirties Dreadnought is the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

All of the Dirty Thirties guitars start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fretboard, with bone nut and saddle. Recording King finished each guitar with classic extra-large fretboard dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and the historic Recording King headstock.

The Dirty Thirties Series packs excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties Dreadnought Solid Top:

    I just got it. Out of the box it was ready to go. First guitar I ever bought that I did not need to adjust the truss rod and/or sand down the saddle. Tone is good with the solid top and bone saddle and nut and the intonation is good. For a first guitar or campfire guitar I don't think it can be beat. If you are a good guitar player and short on cash, this is one to consider. Depending on your playing style, you may want to spend $10 on a pick guard. I give it 4 stars because the frets are a little sharp on the ends, I have not cut a my fingers but I will be dressing the ends.
